Well, as long as you don't have the filesystem mounted with "noatime"
you can use the index file's atime. mtime might work well enough also,
but it's not updated if there have been no changes to the mailbox since
last login.

You could also change mail_executable to some wrapper script which
updates some file's timestamp before executing the pop3 binary.
